This can, however, allow other organizations to gain from the university’s study that tracks and addresses the city’s carbon pollution. The University has hosted a number of free training seminars: ‎
  • Energy saving.‎
  • Energy investment toward sustainable development in the governorate of Thi-Qar.‎
  • Radioactive pollution in the Thi-Qar Governorate and air pollution.‎
  • Its impact on climate change and how to reduce emissions through energy subsidies. ‎
  • Dust storms, their causes, damage, and treatment.‎
  • crisis and disaster management. ‎
  1. SDG14-Life: below water: The University intends to provide educational programs to raise community understanding of the management/conservation of water (including irrigation), fisheries (including damaging fishing methods), aquaculture, and tourism. This will be done in partnership with other local institutions.
  2. SDG15- Life on land: The University is eager to offer a research proposal on the campus’s sustainable food production and land use. The aforementioned research plan will also include examining the fascinating habitats.
  3. SDG16- Peace, justice, and strong institutions: The University wants to instill in its students the values of peace, fairness, and the significance of creating solid institutions. Therefore, having a vibrant student union is crucial. This calls for periodical elections and adherence to all pertinent directives and regulations from the Iraqi Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research.
  4. SDG17- Partnerships for the goals: The University has conducted several partnerships with local and international institutions and organizations to collaborate on poverty, health, and educational goals.

The expansion of coordination with more institutions is essential to accelerate the achievement of best SDG practices.
